For the past twenty-five years, Belinda Kirk's professional life has revolved around adventure. She's seen it change people first hand: turning the timid into the confident, the addicted into the recovering, and the lost into the intentionally wandering. As a force for change, adventure can be powerful like few others.

This book is about this transformational power, and the first to explore why adventure is essential to our wellbeing. From managing anxiety and overcoming fear, to finding self-worth and building interpersonal connections, to being happier, healthier, and more playful, ADVENTURE REVOLUTION draws lessons from more than two decades of experience leading groups into the wilderness around the globe. Illuminated with Belinda's personal narrative, her own research with modern hunter-gatherers, and the latest findings in neuroscience and behaviour, ADVENTURE REVOLUTION presents a compelling case for ditching the living room in favour of a longer, happier, and more adventurous life.

Honor Wilson-Fletcher MBE, CEO British Exploring Society

«A fascinating and convincing manifesto about the importance of adventure for all of us. I thoroughly enjoyed ADVENTURE MIND. The writing is really engaging and a perfect balance of anecdotes, explanations and science. As an academic working in this area I was really impressed by how thoroughly researched the book was and how convincingly it argues for why adventure experiences are so powerful and important. I challenge you to read this book and not immediately start trying to fit some more adventure into your life and the lives of those around you. There are some really nice, realistic, practical examples of how to get everyday adventures at the end of the book too. I have been recommending this book to all my friends and colleagues!»

Helen Dodd, Professor of Child Psychology, University of Exeter

Tom Kemp, Emeritus Fellow of St John's College, Oxford University

«ADVENTURE MIND provides the reader with an in-depth connection to what adventure can mean to a person's life. Using a wide variety of references and examples, the book presents an exploration of the benefits that adventure activities and experiences can be experienced in a personally relevant and intrinsically meaningful way»
